Welcome to Healthy Vegan Fridays!
It was my birthday this week, and I got to go out for dinner alone with my husband which was a rare treat as we’ve only had a babysitter twice since my toddler was born. We went for a gorgeous Turkish meal. I’ve never had such good tasting food. I really wish I could cook with such flavour.
Even though I’ve been exhausted towards the end of my pregnancy, my iron levels have risen to just below the normal range now and if I do get a very rare good night sleep I actually feel pretty good the next day. As I’ve still lost my taste for too many greens, a lot of my friends have now been trying Green Thickies and telling me how nice they are and how good they feel after having them which is encouraging for me. I can’t wait to get back to really healthy eating once the baby is born as I’ve started to noticeably put on a fair bit of extra weight too but I know I’ll have no problem losing it when I get back to fruit and veg based eating.
For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook. It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!

I can’t believe I had never thought about doing this myself. So simple yet so clever and sugar free too. Can’t get better than that!
There are only 2 ways I like to eat Kale, in a smoothie (Green Thickie) or as Kale Chips. My kale chips have been a bit hit and miss in the past but I have free kale growing in my garden so I just have to try this new technique and see if I can finally master kale chips in the oven. If you’ve never tried them you really are missing out!
There were so many good posts this week that I found it very hard to choose my favourites, but I just wanted to highlight some other posts that I loved too.

Green Thickies new 7 Day Detox will help you drop a dress size, improve your skin, your energy will soar and you are going to be so in control and proud of yourself.
You won't go hungry on this diet ... And better yet - it actually requires minimal time in the kitchen.
Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
